From the Mayor’s Office:

National Night Out is scheduled for Tuesday, August 2, 2011. Is your community participating? Please register today at: National Night Out is an opportunity for neighborhoods to raise awareness of crime prevention in a fun, family friendly environment and to celebrate public safety partnerships. It is America’s (and Pittsburgh’s) night out against crime.

Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods celebrate with picnics, porch parties, festivals or by chatting with neighbors on their stoops. It’s a time to learn about neighborhood anticrime programs, strengthen police-community partnerships, and send a message to criminals that residents are organized and working to keep their communities safe, strong and secure.

For questions or more information on Pittsburgh communities’ events, please contact Kyle Thauvette in the Mayor’s Department of Neighborhood Initiatives, at 412-255-2439 or via email at
